    Me and my wife did the same thing when we got our new computers last week. We both felt like it was christmas morning.

    BTW: Don't you love that smell? I keep getting smelling my keyboard since it still smells like that. (I wish I was kidding) lol

    Would you mind posting more pics of it up and running some other time? Especially the screen real estate and its quality...I'm curious to see how it has evolved since my iBook G3 ;) Thanks in advance.

    I envy you. My iMac was shipped in it's white box, with no protective material around it, hence when I got it it was dirty, pockmarked...scarred. I thus was not able to enjoy the pure white that it should have been.

    However, everything inside was perfect, and I was aided in the unwrapping part by my nephew, who assumed the big piece of styrofoam was a seat. He ended up getting stuck in that, and then later getting his foot stuck by trying to wear it as a shoe. Alas, no pictures, for I was in a mad frenzy to get my iMac up and running after having to wait close to a week long than I anticipated.

    Beautiful pictures, I feel as if I have now, by proxy, had the complete Apple experience ;)

    This is so sick. I just took pleasure in looking at pictures of opening an iBook that I didn't even buy. *cry* ahah wonderful!

    Awesome pictures, it made me relive opening my new ibook all over again! :)
    And I know how excited it must make those of you out there who have an iBook on the way !!!!

    Question: how many of you keep the iBook box because of how cute it is? and how many throw it away?

    Have fun with your iBook! Have you got a case/sleeve for it already? I got my Tucano Second Skin in the mail today, it's so cool! And it came with a matching pouch for the cables!!!

    It's a cannon IXY digital... i unno anythign else about it since i got it as a gift from family


    pictures won't do justice of the screen - it kinda screws up the viewing angle and makes it look dark in some areas. I thought it was dark when i looked at it on display @ my campus store (university of Toronto, btw), but believe me, it's freaken bright when i got mine!! :D

    You mean the thing looks like a spider? I think it's the reflection of the ceiling light, looks to be a six bulb chandelier type thing.

    I love it when people post photos of their PC/new toy/whatever and leave stuff in the background.

    I once managed, using a magnifiying glass, to get a phone number off a post-it note in the background of a a porn mag photo-set:eek:. I called it and got through to some girl who was less than forthcoming about whether she was a leggy blonde with a cupid tattoo on her (very) inside thigh and was just more interested in where I'd got the number. Oh to be 15years old again. :D

    Finally I have arrived.....
    For some reason, I am bumping into this type of thread, which temps me toward the new iBook. Even though I cannot rationalize buying another notebook (as I already have enough at this moment), I have been feeling this urge toward a new 12" iBook for my travel use. I am interested in its longer lasting battery charge and its durability.

    I am also a rat packer. I still have all the boxes for my PBs and ACDs.
